GETTING Student Athletes To The Next Level

University Placement

The Hill Academy is dedicated to placing the student-athlete to the institution that meets their athletic and academic potential. Alumni from The Hill Academy are currently attending and thriving at top academic and athletic institutions across North America.

Individual Guidance Attention

At The Hill Academy the student-athletes receive individual attention from our Guidance department. Through individual attention, the Guidance department forms a personal relationship in order to both ensure the student-athlete is on the right track towards graduating and meeting the requirements of their desired school, but also in assisting in the process and finding an institution that would be the perfect fit for the student-athlete.

Extensive North American University Admissions Criteria Knowledge

The Hill Academy only offers Academic Level classes to ensure that the student-athlete meets the 16 core course requirement of the NCAA. One of our guidance counselors specializes in Canadian universities, whereas the other guidance counselor specializes in American universities in order to make certain the student-athletes meet the admissions requirements of their desired school.
